Judge Strikes Down Same-Sex Marriage Ban

5-18 same-sex marriageEUGENE, Ore. – U.S. District Judge Michael McShane struck down the Oregon same-sex marriage ban, Monday.

The National Organization for Marriage filed an Emergency Request for Stay Monday morning, which would’ve halted McShane’s decision. The emergency motion was denied a few hours later by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Same-sex marriage supporters say they hoped the judge would rule in their favor and had a celebratory party planned for the afternoon.

Lane County officials said they would issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples starting at 1 p.m.

      Amendment I
      Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

      The last time I checked the opposition to same sex marriage was based entirely on religious grounds.

    Another black mark on Oregon. Why do they have a homosexual judge, Michael McShane, make these decisions? It is a foregone conclusion what he will decide. You say, why have a straight judge decide? So many are “coming out of the closet” because it seems gay is the way to be now to get what you think you want. For hundreds of years “straight” was good. IT STILL IS.
    There are still people, me included, who think homosexuality is wrong and against all That God intended when he created us.

      lol. I dont even know why you care what other people do. Does it even affect your life? I tolerate gay bashing judgmental religious people, maybe you could exhibit some tolerance also.

    Keep throwing your stones, J. Phillips, because were building a wall. One love

    aw, jason mark and j. phillips! Did you not get your checks from North Korea? The judge did his job, as our Constitution requires him to do. You might try reading it sometime. I’m sorry you hate my country so much, but as the ol’ saying goes, “love it or leave it.” Your un-American and anti-Christian kind will not be missed. It’s okay that you hate God and Jesus though. You have that right.
